John Gruden Calls Shane Vereen “One of the best receiving black backs in football”

If you were listening closely during Monday Night Football’s Giants vs Eagles Broadcast, you may have heard something a little odd out of the mouth of Jon Gruden.

Gruden called backup Giants running back Shane Vereen “one of the best receiving black backs in football.”

The racial equivalent of a Freudian slip did not go unnoticed on social media. Fellow broadcaster Mike Tirico goes right along without correcting Gruden, who is well known for his Monday night rants.

  1. People take shit way to serious, he misspoke saying receiving back and said black by mistake then corrected himself which came out black back. This is why everything is broken in this country. The media is so messed up it isn’t even funny.

    • True, but at the same time, a commentator, should have the awareness of noticing it, and apologizing. Not because he did anything wrong, but because it might rub a few people the wrong way. (and I’m not even talking about the people who think getting offended is a sport)

  2. WAHHH!!! I’M OFFENDED BECAUSE AN ANNOUNCER ON TV MIS-SPOKE AND IT KINDA SOUNDED LIKE HE SAID SOMETHING THAT I MIGHT FIND OBJECTIONABLE! WAHHH TIME TO GRAB MY BULLHORN AND YELL TO THE MASSES ABOUT HOW OFFENDED I AM!!! BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT OFFENDING PEOPLE IS A CAPITAL OFFENSE NOW!! WAHHHH!!!

  3. Why should he have to apologize? We watch live tv all the time and see commentators, news anchors, presidents, etc stubble and misspeak words. I don’t expect an apology from each and everyone of them. I think it’s getting blown out of proportion. Now if he misspoke the N word, then we can talk.

  4. 20146 935821There couple of fascinating points at some point in this posting but I dont determine if these people center to heart.

  5. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks, be sure to shoot me an email if interested.

  6. My husband and i ended up being so relieved when Louis could finish off his investigation using the precious recommendations he gained while using the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic just to continually be releasing guidance that many the others could have been trying to sell. We really take into account we’ve got the website owner to appreciate for this. Most of the explanations you have made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you can assist to create – it is all excellent, and it’s really letting our son and the family imagine that the situation is entertaining, and that’s exceedingly indispensable. Thanks for all the pieces!

  7. Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

  8. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you might have hit the nail for the head. Your thought is outstanding; ab muscles an element that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I will be happy that I found this inside my hunt for some thing with this.

  9. This will be the appropriate blog for anybody who wants to be made aware of this topic. You are aware of much its practically challenging to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You certainly put a different spin on the topic thats been discussed for many years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
